Founder The Good Culture DE
"I really like working with the Personio team, everything just works. The H.U.G. simply has a special vibe, the way people interact with each other, the topics that are discussed - that gives me a lot of pleasure."

Katrin has a degree in cultural anthropology and 15 years‘ experience in large companies, specialising in marketing and transformation („the two are closer together than you might think“). She has always wondered why companies allow so much waste of their employees‘ time, energy and motivation – and wants to change that. That’s why Katrin founded The Good Culture.

This session will only be available in German.

I'm looking forward to H.U.G Happening and the participants! The frequency of change in all areas of life has increased many times over in recent years, making it all the more important to proactively shape these changes so as not to feel exposed to the fast pace of life. I am looking forward to inspiration and exciting people who are interested in sharing their experiences.

As a business psychologist, Eva helps individuals, teams and companies to develop personally and professionally. Always with the goal of enabling each individual to be more self-directed and enjoy their work. She advises organizations and teams in critical (growth) phases and accompanies and designs change processes. Helping to acknowledge conflicts and to solve identified organizational and mental blockages is what drives her. Her heart beats especially for working with values. She is firmly convinced that the recognition and connection of personal and organizational values helps to shape successful corporate cultures.
